Abstract [en]

Sacred movement to the Karian sanctuary of Labraunda in Late Antiquity is here for the first time closely examined. The focus is set on scrutinizing the material remains that emerged from these journeys, and this will be further supplemented by a brief survey of what is known about the equivalent occur- rence in the Imperial period. It is argued that Labraunda's strategic location along the mountain passage between the Mylasa plain and the Karian inland provided safe over-night accommodation and trade opportunities, which consequently stimulated the economy of the sanctuary. Two churches have been excavated immediately outside of the ancient temenoswall, dating from the foundation of Labraunda as a Christian locus sanctus during the early fifth century. The topography of Labraunda with its rich water sources and fertile terraces, along with the eco- nomically fortunate locality, formed an appealing milieu that kept the site's importance also during the Byzantine Middle period.
